City Offers Pet Adoption Special


Thanks to a grant from the Rotary Club of Brownsville Charitable Foundation, anyone who adopts an animal from the Brownsville Animal and Control Center will get an automatic $20 discount. This means the usual $70 fee for a spay/neuter adoption will drop to $50.

According to Art Rodriguez, director of the city’s health department, there are—as of October 28—159 animals in the kennel inventory: 88 dogs and 71 cats.

Rodriguez points out that the fall adoption promotion special is good so long as the $1,850 grant lasts.

“This is a great opportunity,” says Rodriguez, “to take advantage of our adoption promotion. There are lots of deserving, adoptable animals in our kennel and this is a good chance to give one a good home/”

The Animal Control Center is located at 416 FM511, north of Brownsville near Olmito. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday, 1-5 p.m.

For more information call 544-7351.

Melissa,

I saw that dog buying rounds of beer and baskets of wings and yummy fried shrimp at the Ice House. I mean he and his friends were really "woofing down" the goodies.

I was told by an "insider" that he was asked to tone it down when he was howling at the moon the other night.

But then again how much faith can you put in what a dog you meet in a beer joint with great food says?

He looks like the good buddy type. Surely he will be somebody's buddy soon!

Fond regards,

Ralph Cowen
